Ghana continues to benefit from CAD$125m from the Canadian government to support the agricultural sector.

The Deputy Director of Operations at the Canadian High Commission in Ghana, Louise Paris, has underscored the continued collaboration between Canada and its Ghanaian partners in the implementation of the Modernizing Agriculture in Ghana (MAG) Programme.

She said as part of the programme, Ghana is directly receiving CAD $125 million to help modernize the sector which has significant potential for reducing poverty and inequality.

Speaking at a handing over ceremony of rehabilitated and retooled facilities to the Ohawu Agriculture College, she mentioned that the continued collaboration with various partners through the implementation of MAG has enhanced the improvement of Ghana’s agriculture sector.

“Through the MAG programme, Canada is directly providing CAD $125 million to the government of Ghana to help modernise the agriculture sector which has significant potential for reducing poverty and inequality in Ghana. This funding is channelled through government systems with district and regional departments of agriculture as well as the national directorate of MOFA, the CSIR and the Agriculture Colleges all receiving funds to implement their approved activities and to deliver on their respective mandates”. Paris stated.

One of the results of such a partnership is the rehabilitated and retooled facility in Ohawu Agricultural College implemented under the Technical Education Development to Modernize Agriculture in Ghana (TEDMAG) – a capacity-building component of MAG.
